NOFA-NH's 20th Annual Winter Conference
February 6 - 12, 2022 • Online
As climate change impacts food production and poses a threat to the future of our food system, working together as a community and learning to be more self-reliant will be integral to the achievement of food system resilience in the Granite State, ensuring that we are able to withstand and recover from any possible crisis or disruption in the future.
“Collaboration & Self-Reliance: Building a Stronger NH Food System” was the theme for the 2022 Annual Winter Conference conference. A full week of workshops broadly addressed this topic, a keynote speech by Niaz Dorry of the National Family Farm Coalition & North American Marine Alliance, panel discussions, and more!

National Family Farm Coalition & North American Marine Alliance
Niaz has been a community organizer for over 30 years. In 1994 she began organizing fishing communities and immediately recognized the similarities between family farmers and community-based fishermen, each fighting to fix the broken sea- and land-based food system.
She’s been the coordinating director of the North American Marine Alliance since 2008, which led to NAMA joining the National Family Farm Coalition as its first non-farming member. The two organizations entered into an innovative shared leadership model in 2018, putting Niaz in the role of leading the work of both organizations and further cementing the relationship between land and sea.
Collaboration and Interdependence = Self-Reliance
Too often self-reliance is thought of as a solitary effort to protect “self”. But the truth is without collaboration and recognizing our interdependence our self reliance is virtually impossible. We’ll explore what effectively work together without fear of losing ourselves, our identity, and our uniqueness can look like in order to not only build a stronger food system but a stronger social fabric that holds and nurtures all of us together.
